Feifei
Hello Finn. Looking forward to another Authentic Real English?

Finn
Hi, Feifei! Oh yes, always…

Feifei
Actually, before we begin, could you pass me the thingy?

Finn
Which thingy? The script?

Feifei
No, not the script. The thingy behind you…

Finn
Ah, a pen. Do you need a pen? Here you go.

Feifei
No. I've got a pen actually. Two pens. I mean that thingy over there…

Finn
Which thingy, Feifei? Look, the studio is a bit of a mess, so if you keep just saying 'thingy' we could be here all day!

Feifei
Sorry, Finn. 我突然忘了那个东西用英语怎么说,所以我用了 thingy 这个单词。Thingy 来自单词“thing 东西”;它可以用来表示“不知道名字或忘记名字的小东西”。也可以在非正式的语境中来指“某某人”。

Finn
That's right – when you can't remember the name of a particular person…

Feifei
是的,如果你一时记不起某人的名字,就可以用“thingy”。下面请听几个例句。

Examples
You want a recipe for stew? Ask… thingy. She was talking about a lovely one the other day.

Sorry, I'm late for the meeting. Could you just pass me the thingy for my report … I mean… the stapler?

Feifei
That's it! I was asking for the… stopwatch 秒表! 我本想在录节目的时候计时来着。

Finn
No, you don't, Feifei. The programme is over. And this stopwatch shouldn't really be here. It belongs to… to… well, he was looking for it the other day.

Feifei
Belongs to…?

Finn
It belongs to… thingy.

Feifei
Come one, Finn. It belongs to Rob. I'll return it to him!

Both
Bye!
